  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir the onion in the hot oil until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Add the squash in three batches, making sure the first has softened slightly before adding the next. Season with salt.
  2. Heat the tortillas in the microwave until warm, about 10 seconds. Spoon the squash mixture into the center of the tortillas; top with the Cheddar cheese and tomato. Roll into a burrito to serve.

I made this in a non-stick electric fry pan with non-stick spray. I added pepper and also used sour cream and salsa with the cheese and tomatoes. Delicious! It even reheats in the microwave nicely. One of the best ways to enjoy fresh zucchini.

I made it quesadila style rather than burritos and added some grilled chicken breasts to make it a little hardier and to add some protein and it just didn't work for us. It was just so-so, needs something but I don't know what. Will move on to something else.

I am delighted with this recipe! I actually used it as a "starter" and added other seasonings. I used 1 yellow squash and 1 zucchini and we added garlic, cumin, oregano, and pepper. Topped with Monterray Jack cheese, tomato, and a bit of sour cream. Absolutely to die for! Great versatile recipe.

It was too different for my young sons. My husband and I really liked it. Great way to eat up squash! My son doesn't like tortillas, so he had his in taco shells. I cooked as per the recipe. When putting it in the tortillas, I added green tabasco sauce and sour cream. Really good.

This was a great recipe! Simple and scrumptious. I didn't have any fresh tomatoes so I left them off. It's simplicity allowed us to enjoy our "fresh from the garden" squash flavors to be enjoyed. Will definitely make again.

I just added some peppers, and my family loved this!

If you like squash, you will love this recipe. I prepared it according to the recipe.

I'm rating this for how it's written. Very versatile, and like several other reviewers said, a good start for adapting to personal taste. I added some bell pepper, a small can of green chilis, and some spices. Delicious and easy; this will get made regularly in our house, especially as the summer squash and/or zucchini start coming in soon.
